Cessna 210 Pilot Saves His Family
You've heard the expression, "Never say die"? This guy seems to
us to be living proof.
Monte Neilan, 35, took off from Provo Airport around 1100 local
time Monday. On board were his wife, Nicole, 35, and their sons,
Andrew, 12, and Nyle, 4. Not long after leaving the ground, his
Cessna T-210 lost all power -- engine, electrics, everyting --
while over Utah Lake.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports Neilan headed for the airport at
Spanish Fork. But he didn't have the altitude or airspeed to make
it. The ground below appeared to be soggy, so he kept his gear up
and headed for a field in Lake Shore.
There were powerlines. Neilan avoided them. He set down and
skidded for about 500 feet before coming to a stop. Sure, there was
damage to the T-210's prop and underbelly. But Neilan, his wife and
children all walked away. The FAA and NTSB will investigate.
